How many of you are wanting this ability? For those that do, EXACTLY how are you indicating the "long" call in the Notes field? And which Notes field (QSO or Call Notes)?
I think it should be fairly simple to automate the editing of the ADIF file if the "long" name in the Notes field is consistent so a program could look for it and then change the corresponding <CALL:x>shortcall to <CALL:y>longcall. Going the other way (ADIF -> DX4WIN to set the LoTW Cnfm flag) would be more of a challenge but possible. If you are interested in one or both programs, let me know. If there is enough interest, I will see what I can come up with. 73, Lee N7NU >>> WA7AA <wa...@comcast.net> 3/6/2017 1:27 PM >>> On 06-Mar-17 12:55, w...@att.net wrote: > > Specifically, the "Notes for this QSO" notes.

This is what it should look like: Any line that contains <CALL:9>VE100VIMY has to be edited to <CALL:13>VE100VIMY/XXX where XXX has to obviously be the suffix of the worked station, i.e. VE1, VY0, etc. Once there's a match in the LoTW, you'll then have to check the LoTW Cnfm box for the relevant QSO in the log manually. All this goes for any other callsign longer than 12 characters. Convoluted, but the only workaround for LoTW and any other electronic file upload/download, until Paul expands the Callsign entry field beyond 12 characters. With the proliferation of such calls in recent years, this seems a must. 73, Zoran WA7AA ______________________________________________________________ DX4WIN mailing list Home: http://mailman.qth.net/mailman/listinfo/dx4win Help: http://mailman.qth.net/mmfaq.htm Post: mailto:DX4WIN@mailman.qth.net This list hosted by: http://www.qsl.net Please help support this email list: http://www.qsl.net/donate.html !SIG:58bdd466192451957511090! ______________________________________________________________ DX4WIN mailing list Home: http://mailman.qth.net/mailman/listinfo/dx4win Help: http://mailman.qth.net/mmfaq.htm Post: mailto:DX4WIN@mailman.qth.net This list hosted by: http://www.qsl.net Please help support this email list: http://www.qsl.net/donate.html
